master's degrees in public administration or closely related fields. Insti-
tutional projections indicate that another 150 will be awarded a master's

D.    Plans for ProgramImprovement and Recommendations for Legislation

The Administration has requested no funds for the Graduate and Professional
Opportunities Fellowships program. Currently", there is a wide variety of
non-Federal sources of financial support available for minorities and women
pursuing graduate study, especially in engineering and science. These
include support from postsecondary institutions, foundations, and other
private sources. Federal financial assistance is available to graduate
students through the Work Study program and the National Direct Student Loan
program. In addition, through the Guaranteed Student Loan program's Auxiliary
Loan Assistance, graduate students will be eligible for loans of up to $8,000
annually.

Also, there is no need for Federal encouragement of graduate study in the
public service fleTcL Many institutions currently offer high level, high
quality graduate programs in public administration and there is already a
substantial supply of qualified persons to fill public service jobs* The
number of master's degrees awarded in public service fields increased by
141.5 percent between academic years 1970-71 and 1978-79, and doctoral degrees
awarded in these fields increased by 106.7 percent during the same period.
Graduate students in public service fields are eligible to receive Federal
financial assistance through the Work-Study program and the National Direct
Student Loan program. Under the Guaranteed Student Loan program's Auxiliary
Loan Assistance, graduate students will be eligible for loans of up to $8,000
per year to support their education.
